Brake kit
Ordered new brake kit from 1A and shipment came as expected in just a few days. Install was easy especially after watching the how to video provided by 1A (love your videos, very well done!). Only complaint would be the slight squeak that occurs at low speeds just before a complete stop. Hoping this will go away once things get worn in a bit. Definitely would recommend this product and 1A to a friend.
